Love Horoscopes – August 20, 2013
Aries: Today you have the feeling of being restricted by either a person or circumstances. Expect a few verbal battles, disputes, and heated debates at this time. You are having a difficult time feeling at ease or at home in a certain situation. Right now you may say the things you usually only think because you speak your mind without much thought, tact, or consideration of consequences, especially to people you disagree with or in this case, trying to limit you. You wish you could speak out about it, but somehow cannot bring yourself to do it. You need to be true to yourself, despite the consequences. But unless you slow down and get your thoughts in order, it can become quite a headache and cause problems that last beyond today.
Taurus: There are certain issues lingering in the forefront of your mind. Be careful today as you could be inclined to be compulsive or demanding in a close relationship. You have a good chance of moving out of limiting circumstances if you can access what you really want out of the current situation with an important person. If you become too emotionally driven you may force things to explode in some situation. Remember that while you feel they are cramping your style, you also need to see the part that you have played in this mess so far. Maybe before you act, why not take stock of all you have done and see how much of this problem you are responsible for.
Gemini: Lovers, children, and other people (or things) dear to your heart is the emphasis of the energy today. But, there some thoughts that are interfering with an agreed course of action or a relationship with someone close that you are trying to resolve. Thanks to the energy of the day, you do see the cause of the problems more clearly. Right now, taking chances can bring big rewards, maybe not just for you but for all involved. So you have a good chance of resolving this if you can talk about it with the person concerned. They will at least understand and quite possibly help you though. Many of you are looking to be appreciated and admired for your gifts and talents during this time. There is nothing at all wrong with wanting a pat on the back.
Cancer: Forgiveness and an understanding of human frailties figure prominent at this time. Relationships may feel “on hold” because it seems as though you have somehow been cut off from the one closest to you. It is likely that someone needs an attitude adjustment that could easily be remedied by talking through the problems and clearing them up. What you may come to realize is that you need to see that you are not being true to yourself and only you can really fix that. Also, someone may be taking a keen interest in you and insist on getting personal with the questions they ask. Despite your mood, take it as a compliment. It isn’t that they aren’t necessarily being nosey; they just really want to get to know who you really are.
Leo: Though you have a special magnetism and attractive power right now, that power is not doing much for you. You may find it difficult getting anything done. It’s possible that you may have very little energy or patience to cope with certain situations. Normally this would be something blow off but your relationships, particularly the sexual or romantic ones, are rather intense and compelling today. Though your inner feelings and need for love and closeness come on very strongly right now, you are a little conflicted because you are weighed down by someone very close to you. This is making you tired. It needs some careful talking through, which may not be easy, but it is definitely worthwhile. You can take the first steps towards a real breakthrough.
Virgo: You perhaps need to see how not being able to accept others as they are is bringing your current relationship into some difficult waters. The planetary alignment is bringing to your attention a pattern of behavior that is making it difficult for others to get really close to you. If you can stop yourself before you are about to repeat this behavior, you will be able to gradually change it. Remember that you can gain what and who you want through diplomacy or charm, rather than by being forthright and cold. For many of you light and pleasant interactions characterize this time period. You are willing to make concessions in order to maintain harmony in your environment. It has been so chaotic lately, maintaining harmony would be good.
Libra: Today may turn out to be a series of introspection today. One of the matters in your mind is trying to understand the reason why the company of someone fairly close to you makes your skin crawl. There are many twists and turns that may not be obvious to you at first. So it would be a better idea to spend this time alone so that you can really get in touch with how you feel about this. For many of you that are attached, set aside some private time so no one else can get in the way of the feelings you want to share. Special attention to and from a partner is what you should be trying for today. Keep in mind that flattery will get you everywhere if you use it with that fine skill you have worked on for some time.
Scorpio: You may feel the need for more harmony in your most intimate emotional relationships. Thing is that friends or maybe even lovers are posing problems today. In order to make your relationship situation more pleasant and productive, you need to take a look at where your interests clash. It is likely that you are enduring a level of restriction that is so low that not only does it not immediately register in your mind but it barely surfaces. Think about it, are you saying what you really feel, or what you think they would like to hear? Just be mindful of where your motives actually lie. This will clarify things. For many of you the fondness and appreciation for parts of your past will take on greater importance for you now.
Sagittarius: The celestial alignment is having quite an effect on your relationships as circumstances may augment and stimulate appreciation and enjoyment of your love life. During this time your values and ideals may expand, providing you with a better sense of just what makes you most intimate relationships really work. This may lead you to reconsider why you have become involved or are still involved in someone who seems to make things more difficult rather than bring you happiness. These feelings may only be temporary, but think about what motivated you to make the move in the first place. If you are really serious, then talking will begin to bridge the gap. Don’t take this for granted as so many may be truly envious of what you have.
Capricorn: Hasty social get-togethers and communication overloads will plague you throughout the day. This will frustrate you to no end and make you want to shut out the world. And really, you will take any excuse not to have to tell someone close to you something they need to know. There has to be a very good reason why you haven’t been able to be honest with this person, why you may have felt that you can’t speak openly with this person. Now if you want to be happy then you need to be able to talk about what is stopping you from being completely truthful. Now is the time to get quick points across with the minimum effort so it is clear for the future, don’t spend time with wasted words. Get what you need in order to smile again!
Aquarius: Today’s planetary alignment is bringing you the chance to become more uniquely yourself. You have been toying with the idea that you need more freedom, but really you just need to make some elbowroom for yourself. Not that you tend to have too much difficulty being who you are, but lately you may have had some problems recently in feeling completely at home in a certain relationship. Right now your aim should be to have a place for everything and everything in its place; this includes your relationships as well. Taking care of business is where you should direct your emotions now. During this time you crave organization and practicality. Get the things you want in life accomplished with the least effort.
Pisces: Normally you are inclined to flow along with people and situations. You attract what you need and let the world come to you. Today, you are sitting on the fence. You have been going back and forth in your mind whether to jump in and commit. Contentment, emotional well being and harmony prevail in your personal relationships but only if you seriously think about the questions forming in your mind before you make that all-important decision. Take some time to think through whether you can be totally yourself or whether you are pretending. Don’t act until you feel sure; it is a big commitment. Once this is over make time for you to relax, and indulge in whatever brings you pleasure.
